Bristol Rovers and former Maidenhead United defender Alfie Kilgour is at a crossroads in his career according to BristolLive.
The latest GasLive newsletter said of the former Magpies loanee following Rover’s stunning promotion back to League One last season: “The star of one of those stories was Alfie Kilgour, who surely reflects on Rovers’ promotion with slightly mixed feelings. That’s not to say that his delight as a boyhood Gashead was tarnished by a season of injury frustration, but he will certainly want to play a bigger part in a sequel.
“Knee surgery and a couple of subsequent setbacks restricted the homegrown defender to just 11 league appearances in 2021/22, and the coming days and weeks will are something of an audition for a 24-year-old eager to re-establish himself.”
The defender now has 12 months to prove himself with his contract expiring next summer and get back into manager Joey Barton’s plans.
